Alexandra Gambonini shared, “When I started showing 14 years ago, I always dreamed of winning a class at the county fair. After years and years of working hard on breeding our cows to new show bulls, we finally were able to show at the California State Show. With that being said, I never could have imagined I would have a cow win a class at State Show, show at Expo, or become a committee cow. Today, the cow I bred and showed as a two-year-old my last year of 4-H classified EX-95. I am so thankful and honored for this accomplishment.

Thank you to all of the people who have helped us along the way: John Cunningham, Lucas Deniz, Jessica McIsaac, Joe and Amber Price, Allyn Paulson, and Adam Slutz. The biggest thank you of all goes to my partners Graisson and Mandy Schmidt and Steve and Patrick and Maddox. You guys have been the most generous people and we are so thankful you picked out that black junior three-year-old at Madison almost three years ago.”

Your Success is our Passion!
